Kenyon sweeps Mary Washington
Lords clinch quarterfinal berth for fourth time in five seasons
GAMBIER, Ohio -- For the fourth time in the last five seasons, Kenyon is bound for the national quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III men's tennis tournament. Capitalizing on its home-court advantage during the regional rounds, the Lords advanced on Sunday by turning back Mary Washington, 5-0.
Two of the Lords' hottest hands iced the victory in singles play. Wade Heerboth earned Kenyon's decisive point at fourth singles by prevailing 6-0, 6-3. The victory was Heerboth's seventh in a row and gave him a team-best 23 wins this season.
To give Heerboth the opportunity to put the match away, fellow Michael Razumovsky breezed through the second flight, 6-1, 6-2 for his sixth consecutive singles victory. Razumovsky also provided the Lords' first point of the afternoon, an 8-3 decision alongside C.J. Williams at second doubles.
Razumovsky and Williams' victory began a landslide of momentum that ended with Kenyon sweeping doubles play. Within moments of the win at No. 2, Paul Burgin and Kevin Ye buttoned up third doubles, 8-5. Austin Griffin and Tim Rosensteel secured the first doubles by an identical 8-5 margin mere minutes later.
